Now that he’s back on planet Earth, Brian Cummings plans to once again put his fragile body on the line as Maryland’s starting quarterback.
Cummings, still feeling the effects of a concussion he sustained Saturday in the Terrapins’ 52-0 rout of Wake Forest, missed a second straight practice Tuesday. But he has been cleared to play, and Maryland is counting on him to start this weekend against winless Duke.
At one point Saturday, Cummings lay sprawled on the turf for more than a minute after a particularly devastating hit. He finally left for good late in the first half after completing 13 of 20 passes for 224 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
“He was somewhere between here and Mars,” coach Mark Duffner said Tuesday. “He was not in a state to play the second half.”
Cummings wasn’t prepared to do much of anything. He was taken to a hospital for observation after the game and remained there through Monday morning.
Duffner said Cummings will play if the quarterback is able to get enough practice time this week. Earlier this season, Cummings had an ineffective start after missing a week’s worth of workouts because of a separated shoulder.
Duffner said he was looking into getting a special helmet for the 5-foot-11 junior, who has taken more than his share of vicious hits this season, a few of which seemed to the Terrapins to be after the whistle.
“Brian’s a tough guy. He can fight off injuries, but he’s taken a lot of cheap shots this year,” running back Buddy Rodgers said. “You can see on the films, he repeatedly is taking late hits.”
Forgive Duffner and Rodgers for seeming a bit overprotective of Cummings — it’s just that the Terrapins aren’t the same team without him in the lineup.
Cummings was brilliant against Wake Forest, becoming the first Maryland quarterback in nearly two years to throw for three scores. His replacement, freshman Ken Mastrole, was 2-of-11 for 10 yards.
Cummings has completed 52 percent of his passes this season and ranks eighth on the school’s career list, while Mastrole is just 31-of-72 and is still looking for his first touchdown pass.
It’s not just the numbers, either. Cummings’ willingness to play through pain has earned him the respect of virtually every one of his teammates.
“Seeing him out there gives us a lot of fire,” Rodgers said. “It shows us that he’s someone who cares about us, to sacrifice his body to play the game.”
Duffner said, “You hate to say one or two players — like Cummings and Rodgers — are the keys to the team, but it’s obvious they are. We’ve got to keep Brian healthy.”
It hasn’t been easy. Cummings hurt his shoulder last season and is playing with a surgically repaired knee. One reason for his expanding list of injuries is that Cummings isn’t the type of guy that tiptoes out of bounds if the first-down marker is within reach.
“He gets into a frenzy at times,” Duffner said. “He’s a fierce competitor, strong, confident and a hard-playing guy. And, as he continues to play — and if we can keep him healthy — he’s going to get better.”
Mastrole wasn’t supposed to do much more this season than gain experience in a mop-up role, and he thus far has very much looked the part of a freshman — particularly against Wake Forest.
“I was disappointed in his performance. It was a combination of him hurrying the ball and being a bit slow on his mechanics,” Duffner said.
“My timing was off,” Mastrole said. “I’ll take the blame for those incomplete passes — the linemen gave me all the time in the world. I played badly, but it’s not going to ruin my confidence.”

(More Cricket News)The finalists have termed their respective 15-member squads for the five-day showdown, which is predicted to be an edge of the seat thriller. Both sides have some of the best operators in the game, let alone the arrangement. Thus, it’s only fitting to provide a lowdown on some probable match-ups. Here are top-five clashes that will settle the problem:
World Test Championship Final, India Vs New Zealand: Players To Watch Out ForHere’s a look at the top players from both India and New Zealand before the World Test Championship (WTC) closing at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, beginning from June 18. © AFPHighlightsIndia take on New Zealand at the WTC final start on FridayBoth teams have several quality players that can make the differenceWe Have a Look at the top players from both sides
Rishabh Pant: The volatile Indian wicketkeeper-batsman has been among the most highly-rated participant in world cricket for the past of couple of years. Pant’s unorthodox batsmanship and his temperament of taking the game to the opposition, irrespective of the circumstance, can surely be the X-factor that India need against a strong New Zealand attack.The youthful wicketkeeper-batsman declared himself in Test cricket by beating Adil Rashid for a six over long-on in his debut match.
Man United vs Everton match report check now | Premier league MUN
Man United vs Everton
Manchester United twice gave up the lead as Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted deep in second-half stoppage time to earn Everton a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Everton looked the more dangerous side in the opening minutes, but it was Manchester United that scored first when Edinson Cavani connected with a lovely Marcus Rashford cross at the back post to head home for the lead on 24 minutes.
Premier League Results and Points Table: The match Manchester United vs Everton ended in a 3-3 draw. Everton scored in the 90+5′ minute to equalize.
Manchester United had hoped to go to the top of the table and believed that they would right up until the injury time of the match.
Manchester United gain a 2-goals lead
The first goal came in the 24th minute for the Red Devils. Edinson Cavani scored as Rashford drifted out to the right-hand side. He had enough time to get his head up and spot his man.
Cavani was alert to the chance and headed it past Olsen to gain the lead for the hosts.
The second goal came right before the half-time whistle. Bruno Fernandes puts Ole’s men two goals ahead. He dummied a pass to Aaron Wan-Bissaka and then received possession to curl a right-footed effort over Olsen into the top-left corner.
On the other hand, Everton are going through a rough patch as they have won only two games out of their last five. They are currently at the 7th spot in Premier League. Ole talked about Pogba’s future: “We’ve got a good open dialogue with Paul, so what we talk about and how we see that situation remains between us of course. I’m just happy he’s focused, he’s playing really well and he’s happy in himself and that’s important. You can see Paul now enjoying playing football with a red shirt on.”
Manchester United vs Everton: Confirmed line-ups
Man United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Cavani
Subs: Henderson, Telles, Williams, Matic, Van De Beek, Martial, Fred, James, Tuanzebe
Everton: Olsen, Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne, Doucoure, Gomes, Davies, Richarlison, James, Calvert-Lewin
Subs: Virginia, Nkounkou, Coleman, Delph, Bernard, Iwobi, Mina, Sigurdsson, King
The 26-year-old has been at United for just over a year but he’s already scored 21 league goals. What makes that number even more insane is that he’s also recorded 19 assists in that time-frame.
Fernandes is now in solo second in the race for the Golden Boot, just two goals behind Mohamed Salah.
One man who was impressed with Fernandes’ goal was former United hero, Robin Van Persie.
He wrote on Twitter: “Bruno Fernandes ladies & gentleman. What a joy to watch him play! Just wondering… how many goals for RvP with him in midfield.”
We will never know the answer to that question but it’s a lot.
United were 2-0 up at half-time after goals from Edison Cavani and Bruno Fernandes but the scores were level less than 10 minutes after the interval after Abdoulaye Doucoure capitalised on some sloppy goalkeeping from David de Gea before James Rodriguez rifled in an equaliser.
United restored their advantage when Scott McTominay’s looping header from Luke Shaw’s free-kick crept in at the far post, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin stabbed home deep into injury-time to deny United a huge win. Old Gunnar Solskjaer will be pleased with the way his side attacked but De Gea’s latest mistake might have posed a new dilemma and there is concern over Paul Pogba’s fitness after he limped off with a muscular problem in the first half.
